October 2011 Update

October 2011 Update

Ah, it's been awhile since the last update, and you guys are surely wondering what all the staff has been up to since then. So, here a look into what the project statuses are:

Infinite Statos - Currently re-encoding series into 10- bit. As far as the subs go, they are being revised and slightly edited. Shouldn't take too long from here.

Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? - RAWs are downloading for the remaining episodes. Still need to be all encoded into 10-bit, then subs will be edited.

Lucky Star - All encodes are complete. Subs are being heavily modified. Takes about 3-4 hours per episode, so it's extremely time consuming. Currently 12/24 episodes are fully complete.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka ★ Magica - The state of this project is slightly.. unsure of. Rev is still going to be encoding the series, but the sub work has been re-assigned. Will update the projects page as more details are figured out. But, it's not being dropped, so don't worry :)

Shakugan no Shana - Episodes 12/24 are complete. The last half is kinda on hold due to me downloader over 2TB of BDMV files over and over and having them all end up corrupted. If anyone can point me to a NON CORRUPTED BDMV of this show, please please let me know.

To Aru Majutsu no Index II - Remaining episodes are downloaded and will begin encoding soon. One thing to note is that this is our last planned 8-bit release.

And.... I'm re-opening the projects queue for new ones. If you have suggestions, please check out our new voting system to showcase your opinion! We're going to start going into a scheduled release schedule around when the new year comes, so we'll be announcing our next "subbing season" in a bit. For now, let hear some suggestions :)

One last thing to address... Haruhi 720p remake. Honestly, no one on the team has enough motivation to tackle this project right now. But, we're still not dropping it. We're going to include this in our next season's schedule so that this will get done, no matter what. I know we've been constantly disappointing you guys with false hope on this project. But, fear no more! I will make sure that this project is worked on in the next season.

Any Questions?

UPDATE: We have just updated our Video Playback Guide for new methods that will fully support Hi10P encodes. They are quite different from what your computer is probably setup as, if you have never played 10-bit encodes. Be sure to follow them fully before complaining about Hi10P playback!

I would have loved to have the second half of the Toaru Majutsu no Index II release in Hi10p, but I am just grateful that you guys are releasing it.

Keep up the great work with your projects!

Is it possible for Elysium itself to translate instead of using the already done ones?

# Ametatsu | 2011-10-06 12:06
Technically... it is possible, yes. But will we? No

Dantalian no Shoka. I haven't heard about any other group doing the blu-rays for it (though only the first volume is out). Same goes for Penguindrum.

I guess it's too soon to suggest summer 2011? Or do you care?

How about Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari no one completed this show yet.

Steins;Gate, Toradora!, and maybe Bakemonogatari. .. if only because colagirls' release is HUGE.

And a nice, healthy sigh for the news of Haruhi in 720p.

Steins Gate and Toradora.

Hope to see a good year ahead for you guys.

The most sensible HD fansub group I've seen. Using AAC and 10-bit to hit that sweet spot in between quality and file size without compromising both too much? Very smart decision.

Steins;Gate would be one of the most wanted at the moment, along with Nichijou. No need to do Kara no Kyoukai as ANE's release is good enough. Buy a bigger external if 50GB doesn't fit.

It's 70 GB, btw.

Both the other series you suggested will be picked up by other groups, in fact, Coalgirls already picked up both Nichijou and Steins Gate. I'm also pretty sure Doki will do Nichijou BD. So by following your train of thought, there's also no need to pick any any of the other two series, especially Nichijou.

Sure, but Coalgirls is terrible, and their releases are always bloated. It's fine if you're okay with them, but I'd rather have mine in good quality along with a good filesize.

You're talking about bloat and good filesize, yet you're openly against KnK which is 70 GB.

Coalgirls certainly has bad releases, but it had some pretty good releases too, but I haven't checked their Steins:Gate and Nichijou. Have you checked them? Their Nichijou 1080p release is not even bloaty (600-700 MBs per episode).

However, as I said, Doki will surely release Nichijou, and I consider Doki to be a good group. As for Steins:Gate, it's a pretty popular show, so a number of groups will pick the BDs up for sure, among them UTW.

Of course, Elysium can still pick up both, as the vote itself is not their primary deciding factor. In fact, by the time Elysium finishes its ongoing projects, we'll see the situation much clearer.

Steins;Gate or Toradora! 2 of the best thigns to come out over the last couple years no question. I think if you guys did Steins gate tho that would just be the coolest thing Im sure you would get loads and loads of downloads.

I'd also like to suggest Bakemonogatari, Steins;Gate and Kara no Kyoukai. Maybe also the Queen's Blade OVA?

# Anonymous | 2011-10-04 15:04
Also, I'd really like seeing some of the finished shows rereleased with AAC and 10bit encoding. Not a big deal but it would be nice to have smaller file sizes.

# 七四三 | 2011-10-04 08:15
^^: must agree; especially with the Kara no Kyoukai, considering that the ones with good quality are eating up HDD up to about 30GB..

# papsi | 2011-10-04 03:03
Instead of lolishows, may I suggest to reconsider the shows already in the wish-list, like Baccano and Kara no Kyoukai? Especially KnK, as this screams for 10-bit encoding. I'm really interested how 10-bit would handle the 5th episode, as it's hard to encode.

Thank you! :)

Yes, please! The only good Bakemonogatari BD 720p release I know of is Coalgirls, and theirs uses (a) ordered chapters and (b) non-gg subs.

Personally, I'd rather see Haruhi 720p instead of new shows, but that's just my opinion I guess.

Yeah... I'm sure that's how much people feel. Okay, I'll make sure this does get done. Just updated the post...
